A crossing in Radlett has finally been repaired, two years after it was first reported.

Kevin Carrol, Ringway Divisional Manager, working on behalf of Hertfordshire County Council, apologised and explained the reasons for the delay.

He commented: “We would like to apologise for the delay in getting the missing Belisha Beacon and bollards that were damaged in a road traffic collision in Watling Street replaced.  We understand the local concern with this and would like to thank residents for their patience as their replacement took longer than expected.

“We must prioritise maintenance works and fix the most dangerous faults first, in accordance County Council’s guidelines. The works required extensive planning and disruptive traffic management, including the temporary closure the service road affecting parking for the shops here.

“We always look for the most cost-effective way to carry out repairs like this and group repair works like this together if we can.  We also took this opportunity to upgrade the damaged Belisha Beacon here to LED lighting.

“The LED street lighting upgrade programme is designed to save both money and energy. On average the programme has saved approximately 60% of the energy and cost required to power street lights. By using LED Lights, we are saving energy, creating a sustainable future, so far, Hertfordshire County Council has reduced CO2 emissions by 10,736 tonnes since 2010/11.”
